Re: 60 e-tec prop

Congratulations on the new boat and motor. In order to provide you with the best prop recommendation for your application. I will need to know your engines model number, so I can verify what gear ratio you have.

Re: 60 e-tec prop

You will probably find that a 15" or 17" pitch prop will work. Try each one and make sure that the one you choose allows your motor to turn about 5600-5800 rpm  with a full tank of fuel and a normal load of passengers and gear aboard.

 I forgot to mention previously that the redline for your motor is 6000 rpm.

The pitch is the 15" or 17 " number. The diameter is determined by the manufacturer. Be aware that finding the best prop is a trial and error procedure. Your dealer should help you too as he should be familiar with your rig.

Your engine is an AA model wtih a 2.67:1 gearcase ratio.

 

Talk to your dealer as you are not yet registered as the owner of the outboard motor

You may want to watch this short video.

It will help you understand the process of selecting the correct propeller for your intended use of your boat.

Re: 60 e-tec prop

I've had a lot of success with the 13x17" stainless steel 4 blade Rogue. I have a 15 ' fiberglass bow rider 1200lbs. Does 37 mph, very happy with this prop choice. Turning 5600-5700 rpm on the 60 E-Tec
